I used to make mp3's of each song seperately. Then I used to convert that to wav files and make cd's with my cd burner. Now what do i do? Im not a computer whiz.

Again, that's too much fuss for crappy mp3s.
Wait and figure out how
to download the highest quality SBDs that you can. They are still available if you make some contacts and poke around. They will usually come as lossless .shn, .flac, or .zip's of those kinds of files. Never convert .mp3s to .wavs or a similar higher resolution format. You pollute the data chain.

Just to add my $.02.... it's not worth burning a very lossy SBD. They sound really bad compared to the SHN's. My advice is look elsewhere for those.

You might find some decent MP-3s once in awhile; but a lot of them have that trashy "whoosh" effect, which is a by-product of bad decompression.

It reminds me of the old "DBX (noise reduction compressor/expander)" of the late 70's. They never could calibrate every tape machine the same which gave inconsistent results. This is exactly why some of those Betty boards aren't quite right.

I also make sure to properly mark my sources as SHN, FLAC, MP-3 etc.- to avoid mix ups or putting a disk into the wrong machine. We don't want to distribute the wrong stuff by mistake either...

It may work to capture the streams, but you are still dealing with a VBR MP3 source, and it'll never be as good quality as the original SHN/FLAC.

you need to get a recording and editing program like blaze audio's rip edit burn. it records the stream into wav files then you can burn a cd. it's very similar to when we used to tape shows off the radio. the only drawback is it's in real time but at least it's a way around the current b.s. and you get the added satisfaction of sticking it to those greedy bastards

Great post, it is an option and more people should be aware of it.

There are a couple of commercially available software programs that allow you to record anything off of your computer or the web. My favorite is Cakewalk Pyro5, it allows you to record and digitilize tapes and records as well. It also allows you to edit out silent and dead air patches and to edit your own song breaks (for instance, I usually delete the song breaks in Lazy Lightning >> Supplication, and treat it as one song. this does not eliminate any sound, just takes away the song break). Another one is All Sound Recorder XP. Both of these allow you to record and edit anything off your computer,the web, or an ouside source, i.e. tape deck or record player, in real time.
